Vascular endothelial cadherin, VE-cadherin, CD144, Cdh5.
Cadherin-5, also known as CDH5 is a classical cadherin which belongs to
the cadherin superfamily. The CDH5 is located in a six-cadherin
cluster in a region on the long arm of chromosome 16 which is involved in loss
of heterozygosity events in breast as well as prostate cancer.
CDH5 is a calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion glycoprotein
composed of five extracellular cadherin repeats, a transmembrane region and a
highly conserved cytoplasmic tail. Furthermore, CDH5 functions
as a classic cadherin by passing on to cells the ability to adhere in a homophilic manner, CDH5
plays a significant role in endothelial cell biology through control of
the cohesion as well as organization of the intercellular junctions.
CDH5 produced in Sf9 Insect cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 583 amino acids (25-599a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 66.2kDa. (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 70-100kDa).
CDH5 is expressed with an 8 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
